In-memory database technology is fashionable in recent years as the price of RAM drops substantially and gigabyte chips become affordable. By taking advantage of the cost-performance value of RAM, leading edge database developers are boosting the performance of next-generation databases with in-memory technology. However, many developers who intend to adopt in-memory technology only think of speed in terms of RAM, and do not exploit the true power of in-memory technology.

In general, computer scientists treats code and data in two very different ways. Virtual memory was originally developed to run big programs (code) in small memory, while data are entities kept in external storage and must be retrieved into memory before computing. As a result, today’s application developers think by instinct the programming model based on storage and explicit data retrieval. This model, referred to as storage-based computing, plays an important role and has done a great job…Continue
